Eh as long as we get them eventually....:/

I knew about the Anime Watching Challenge before I did my first one in 2017, but didn't feel like I could devote enough time to actually succeed in it (because of said slump from 2012 to 2016 or so). Getting into it that first time really helped me get back on track to prioritizing time into my anime watching again. I'm not sure if I'll participate again in 2019, though. I feel like I might be able to stay on track without it, and will likely use badge hunting through MAL-Badges as a way to keep me engaged instead. It was a lot of fun doing the AWCs these past two years, but the items in this year's Challenge felt a bit more restrictive than I'd like. Instead of encouraging me to watch different things than usual, it just felt like most of the "challenge" was finding things to actually fit the items, which I feel shouldn't really be the point of the Challenge. But with that said, I could encourage you to check it out and participate next year if you're interested! I'm thinking about maybe trying the Manga Reading Challenge next year instead since my reading has been pretty stagnant lately.

And thanks for the kind words, man! I'll be doing my best to help make the business successful. However, when I said "rules language" I meant the language of rules, the structure of rules writing; not actual foreign languages. XD That said, I AM interested in learning Japanese as a foreign language. I took two years of it in college back right out of high school, but I'm a bit out of practice these days, other than just being able to pick up words here and there when I'm watching anime or listening to Japanese music. I need to find time to study again. I'd never heard of Memrise. I'll have to check out the website when I have time at home sometime. It looks like it's a popular app, but this is when I confess that I don't have a smartphone; I still use an old school flip-phone. XD I feel like I'll probably have to finally give in and get a smartphone after my current phone gets too old, but in general I don't really have the desire to be that connected to where I need a computer in my pocket to access information at all times. I get that it can be useful, but I feel like most things can wait until I get to a proper computer. I prefer an actual laptop or desktop when using the internet. I suppose I'm a little old fashioned in that way. Anyway, that's cool that you're learning Italian! I've toyed with the thought of also trying to learn German and Spanish and maybe some other languages, but don't think I have the drive or time to attempt to learn more than one foreign language.

Your story sounds interesting. Let me know if/when you put any of it out there, either on an online platform or published in some way. :)

If you're interested, Somnium is a recent art project that my friend did, which I should be getting my copy of the game soon! He did all of the art and graphic design for the thing and he's really happy with how it came out. I'd link his DA account to show you more examples of his art, but I'm at work and I think DA is blocked on our government network. Even if it wasn't, I wouldn't dare trying to surf that site at work. XD

I used to be really into drawing back in the day, was even an art major during my second year of college when I went the first time. But I'm way out of practice in that, too. I'll like to work on it again, but seeing artists much better than me is a little discouraging, and there are other things that I'm better at. I might still see if my friend could give me some art lessons sometime, if we ever have time to do something like that.

Good luck with combatting your writer's block! That can be rough. Have a good one and talk to you later! ^_^

I agree that black clover isn't the best, but I like it for what it is. It's a silly oldschool style shonen thats filled to the brim with cliches, but it never once tries to be anything that it isn't. You know exactly what you're getting from the first chapter and it never takes itself seriously at all. I see so many series that try so hard to be intense or hardcore but they're just not and it ruins it completely, whereas it seems to me that the author of Black Clover is fully aware that its a mediocre B-list series and I gotta give it credit for owning up to it. Although after looking back I do think an 8 is a bit too generous. 7 seems more appropriate to me.
IndianAnimeReker Oct 17, 4:12 AM
Thanks for the kind words ahahaha. I'm always down to talk about anime with other people. And yes I've always felt I should do so more reviews for shows, thanks for reminding me about it.
pluvia33 Oct 16, 1:18 PM
Yeah, the longest thing I've finished was Bleach, but I caught up with that in 2006 when I had a lot of free time as a single Airman and then mostly kept up with it until they ended it. I similarly watched all of the first series of Naruto, but dropped Shippuuden after 60 episodes. After 2012 I didn't have as much free time to devote to anime, sadly, but I feel like I'm kind of getting more of that back these days so I might give Gintama a shot sometime next year (after I finish off the 2018 Anime Watching Challenge).

Although I still think it'd be cool to own an anime store, the board game thing will likely be plenty to keep me occupied with business stuff. Aside from my passion for rules language and game mechanics, I feel like I can really bring a lot to the table from a business standpoint. The other two members of our little company are mainly art and idea guys, so I bring in a lot of structure. While I don't hate my day job it can get monotonous, so having this on the side can help give me more fulfillment in my life. Simply enjoying entertainment can only get me so far in that regard. XD

Thanks for the tips, though! I'll keep that in mind if I get in a good place to start the store after all. My friend (one of my board game company partners) has similar feelings about liking to see people follow their dreams. He's following his as both a game creator and a freelance artist and many other things. The amount of drive that guy has is almost enviable, but it does end up taking him away from our gaming time more than I'd like. =P

That's cool that you write! What type of stuff do you write? I used to dabble in writing, but nothing substantial ever came out of it. I have a few interesting ideas that I'd still like to get off the ground, but I don't know if I'll ever have time to do it. We'll see, though. If you have anything out there on an online platform, I might be interested in checking it out. ^_^

And dude, I am probably the last person you'd ever need to apologize to when it comes to walls of text. My comments to you have been restrained by my standards. Just look at how much I've written on my profile and in my blog.... Anyway, good talking to you! Have a good one!

I liked Greed too, he was my favorite Homunculi and thanks for the recommendations I'll check it out!
Btw yes it is Revy beating the shit out of someone xD!

Thanks for reading and enjoying my reviews.

As for my codes, I understand if a certain anime is really terrible it should be dropped, but in my mind, I can't help have this feeling that if I dropped it, then I might be missing some important development or content if I had dropped it early on.

Now, Monster is probably one of the best mystery/thriller adaptions I have ever seen. The basis premise is this: "the story revolves around Kenzo Tenma, a Japanese surgeon living in Germany whose life enters turmoil after getting himself involved with Johan Liebert, one of his former patients, who is revealed to be a psychotic serial-killer."

And over the next 74 episodes, we get to see Johan, who is probably one of the most interesting villains in an anime series. Is it worth? Hell, yeah it is worth it. The series was so good, I marathon the entire series in under two week over summer break. If you have the time, I suggest you watch it.

I've been contemplating getting into Gintama for a while, too. But man, it's just so LONG! Not sure if I can get into something like that any time soon. I keep hearing good things, though, and I'm a bit of a sucker for Rie Kugimiya so Kagura alone might keep into it if/when I do give it a shot. ^_^

Yeah, my job pays pretty well, but sadly I have a way-too-expensive mortgage eating up nearly half of my take-home pay each month. It's kind of funny that I sort of fell into this career field. I went into the Air Force about 13 years ago and finance was just where they stuck me. I did my 4 years and then ended up continuing to work for them as a civil service employee, then got pretty lucky with moving up into high grade positions over the years.

That's cool that you do your own business stuff with your brother! I've played with the idea of opening my own anime goods store, even finished my Bachelor's degree with a business major, but that will probably never happen at this point. I'll most likely just ride out my civil service job until I'm able to retire. Although I am kind of a business partner with a couple of guys for a small independent board game company on the side, so that gives me a little bit of that entrepreneur feel. It also lets me design game rules which has been a bit of a passion of mine for a while since making custom rules for D&D 10 years ago. Good luck with the restaurant venture!

Yeah, and ultimately as long as you enjoy it, doesn't matter which version you check out. But I at least wanted to give you a taste of the quality actors they have in the sub'd version. :D I have no doubt that either way you'll enjoy it though, it has so much to offer! :D
pluvia33 Oct 11, 8:56 AM
I actually checked out the first episode of Spice and Wolf back around when the first season aired, but it didn't particularly grab my attention. However, I was sampling a lot of anime 1st-episodes at the time to try to pick things to show at an anime club that I was running. So I probably didn't give it much of a chance. My career field is financial management and I've taken a few economics classes, so I may end up enjoying that aspect of the series now. I should give it another shot at some point....

Angels of Death might be my "most likely to drop" anime out of what I started last season. I've only watched one episode so far, but it didn't seem all that interesting to me. And yes, that guys laugh is really dumb! XD

I really need to work through finishing everything in my "Watching" list. A lot of those should definitely have "On-Hold" status at this point, but I don't want to lose track of them in there. Hellsing Ultimate is one that should be pretty easy to knock out, but I got distracted with other things. I've been in a bit of an anime slump in general, but hopefully I'll get back on track. MAL getting all screwed up really threw me off. But yeah, Hellsing has been enjoyable. It's unlikely to rank very highly with me, but it is amusing enough.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my list! Again, MAL blogs kind of suck, so my posts don't get much exposure. As far as the Haruhi movie goes, that is a sequel to the TV series, so I'm not sure how enjoyable it would be as a standalone work. I'm sure it'd be fine, but I would recommend watching the 2006 and 2009 episodes beforehand if you're able and willing. And it could also be a little complicated at this point. The series should be watched with the episodes sorted in chronological story order and that involves a mix of the 2006 and 2009 episodes, going back and forth. I'm not sure off hand if there's anywhere to stream the series with it already in that order or not. And in case you haven't heard, there is a set of 8 episodes which are mostly the same exact thing: Endless Eight. I personally enjoyed that stretch of episodes, but unless you have a decent tolerance for repetition and/or can really appreciate little differences between the episodes (I believe each rendition had a different episode director), it would probably be best to at most watch three renditions: the first, second, and eighth. But again, that's if you bother with watching the TV series or not. It would be interesting to hear your impression of the movie if you decide to only watch that.

And yeah, we definitely have some differences in anime tastes. It looks like I am much more into slice of life, "cute girls doing cute things", "cute girls + activity" type shows than you are. But as you said, we do have some similarities in tastes, too. I'll give you a heads up if I see anything that you might enjoy!

Hey man! Thanks for the friend request! Just so you know for future reference, since it seems you've only ever made one blog post, other people don't get notifications when you comment on a blog that they've commented on. If it wasn't for your friend request, I probably would have never checked back on your entry to see if you'd posted a comment on there. The blog system really sucks on MAL. I really wish they'd improve it.

Anyway, that's cool that you plan on watching Higurashi and Toradora! eventually, since they are my second and third favorite anime. And yeah, Madoka can get a bit abstract, especially with the third movie.

Let me know if you have any questions about any of the shows on my Top 100 List if you are able to give it a look. See you around! ^_^
Stacycmc Oct 7, 9:11 PM
Ah yeah there are a few that are just phenomenal.....they just have such presence when you hear them talk, where to me a lot of the English actors just fall flat. I understand why too.....in Japan, it's HUGE...so you have IMMENSE talent doing voice over work for stuff like this. For the English speaking, MUCH less so, so unfortunately you mostly end up with B-rated actors doing the voices, and it's generally QUITE noticeable, especially in contrast to the seasoned Japanese counterparts.

Here are a few of the best ones off the top of my head, but there are a TON of great VA's throughout this show:
- Hattori Zenzou - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL7u6CbW04s
- Gintoki - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24zD1sgf_vQ
- Hijikata - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ok5TjLc4Wo
- Katsura - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pZikGZ3FDs
- Hasegawa - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f34Gzmb2o8Q
- Sakamoto - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yteyBKbVRIc
- Kondo - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmA2a1iHzyo
- Matsudaira - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci4tjsyUGis
- Okita - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJY4c2fQJUs

The English speaking Gintoki's just make me sad. To me, they do not do the character justice. You feel like the chill, lax mood of Gintoki in the Japanese version, but I don't get that at all with the other VA's. Gintoki is always laid up and doesn't want to go out and such, so it suits him to have a that chill voice....
Stacycmc Oct 7, 5:14 PM
Ah man I can't do dubbed....even on the best shows (i.e. those known to have excellent dubs). And the subbed has some epic voice actor's in it... I LOVE Gintoki's voice actor as well as Hijikata's (Hijikata's was Mugen in Samurai Champloo among MANY other shows, he's amazing...the Shinsengumi captain above Kondo is awesome too..LOL, so many good ones).... I will watch entire animes just because they are one of the voice actors. Ultimately watch it however you need to in order to fully enjoy it, but just know there are some badass actors in the subbed/japanese version. :D

it's hilarious though, it literally made me happy to watch it, LOL.

Wait....are you having to skip seasons i order to see it dubbed?? Ah if so that makes me sad. That show definitely is "builder". It slowly introduces you to a million characters that serve their role later on....I would highly recommend watching every bit of it.
Stacycmc Oct 7, 6:20 AM
I LOVE Vikings....I've seen like 2 seasons, but am behind so need to catch up. I LOVE Largatha and Ragnar.....that's a great show. Surprised the hell out of me finding something like that on the dang History channel, LOL!! I've heard of Revenge too, but haven't watched it.

As far as Gintama goes.....if you give it time, I think you'll LOVE it. It is one of my all-time favorites, and is what I consider...by far...the funniest anime I've ever seen. At first I just thought it was ok, the story is spread out between what seems to be random, wild, nonsensical episodes, but after you get into it a ways, the jokes build...so just get funnier and funnier, and you get to know the chars more, which it has soooo many awesome characters in that show! It has crazy humor, for sure....LOL. Anyway, just know, if you don't feel it's all that at first, I felt the same and after watching every season / movie they had I consider it one of my favorites. It has a little bit of everything to offer, as although it's quite hilarious, it'll throw some curve balls at you. The story, which is indeed sporadic and slow to progress (as it seems unrelated but builds to something bigger eventually, and has mini arcs making up what you think is the primary story).....is an awesome story. Anyway....enough of that...just know that I LOVE it, and that you'll need to give it time (like a pretty fair amount, not like a few episodes) to really appreciate it. :D

good luck!!
